Christianity

What do the Christians speak?

For most of the early Christian who convert in and around Jerusalem (all of whom were Jews), the "native tongue" would have been a form of Hebrew or Aramaic. As the teachings spread to the Gentile world, more and more converts would have been speakers of Greek and Latin in general. However, on the Day of Pentecost (a Christian festival celebrated on the seventh Sunday after Easter, commemorating the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the apostles; Whitsunday), Jews who spoke a wide variety of languages had come to Jerusalem for the Feast from all over the world, and a large crowd gathered toward the house where Jesus' apostles were, drawn by the sound that had accompanied the advent of the Holy Spirit.

Where did the Christians live?

The Christians mostly lived in Europe.
